Portsmouth High School is delighted to announce the cre- ation of a second reception class for September 2002.

Now the only independent single-sex school in Portsmouth, the school has seen a significant increase in demand for places and, as a result, would be very inter- ested in hearing from parents who would like to consider entering their daughters for September 2002 at 4+. Based in Thomas Ellis Owen's large family home and

beautiful grounds in the centre of Southsea, the closely- knit community believes that all activities, whether acad- emic or social, should be fun, stimulating and vibrant. In the Junior School all the girls across the year groups

learn to work and play together as one community, creat- ing an atmosphere of a large family at home. Small class sizes ensure that pupils receive excellent individual care and attention whilst participating in a broad and stimulating education programme. Single-sex education is best for girls and is proven time

• See themselves as being in charge of their own choic- es, values and quality of life • Hold more positive attitudes about school

and time again, according to the school. Research has found that girls in girls' schools:

• Achieve at significantly higher levels at reading and science • Overcome traditional sex-role stereotypes Comfortable in an environment without stereotypes,

pupils become self-confident and develop to their full potential. On leaving the school they have the world at their feet - they will know who they are and where they are going. Call now on 023 9282 6714 to find out more.
